This Cuzcan School Oil painting was painted by the well known Cuzcan painter Edgar Castro Tapia. His whole family works and manages the San Blas atelier in Cuzco.
This marvelous piece comes with a carved cedar wood frame, covered with bronze leaf.
The Cuzco School (Escuela Cuzqueña) was an artistic tradition that centered on Cusco, Peru (the former capital of the Inca Empire) in the 17th and 18th centuries, after the 1534 Spanish conquest of the city.
The Cusqueña paintings were a form of religious art whose main purpose was didactic. The Spanish, who aimed to convert the Incans to Catholicism, sent a group of religious artists to Cusco. These artists formed a school for Amerindians and mestizos, teaching them drawing and oil painting.
Cusqueña paintings are characterized by their use of exclusively religious subjects, their lack of perspective, and the predominance of red, yellow and earth colors. Though the Cusqueño painters studied Byzantine, Flemish, and Italian Renaissance art, their works were freer than those of their European tutors: they used bright colors and distorted, dramatic images, and depicted their native flora and fauna as a backdrop in their works.
Most Cusqueña paintings were created anonymously because of pre-Columbian traditions that define art as communitarian
St. Rose was beatified by Pope Clement IX in 1667, and canonized in 1671 by Pope Clement X as the first Catholic in the western hemisphere to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church. She is the patroness of Lima, Peru, the Americas and the Philippines, and the city of Sittard, in the Netherlands. In addition to this, she is also the patron saint of the city of Santa Rosa, California in the United States which literally means St. Rose in Spanish.
